Through research, standards, and analysis we help our members deliver a better, safer railway.

We are a rail industry body which brings all parts of the rail system together to support shared decisions, products and services, to help industry drive out unnecessary cost, improve business performance and develop long-term strategy.

RSSB is built on strong technical capability, and the enabling of collaborative industry engagement for the benefit of the whole rail system.

We are a centre of excellence valued by our members and stakeholders as an essential contributor to their success.

From risk models to Rule Book, from research projects to innovation initiatives, from data to decision making, we provide a powerful portfolio of knowledge services to the rail industry in Great Britain.

We are owned and driven by the rail industry itself, with nearly 100 members including infrastructure managers, passenger train operating companies, freight train operating companies, rolling stock owning companies, infrastructure contractors, and the supply chain.

Virtually all of RSSB’s products and services are overseen, governed, commissioned or published by a cross industry group, involving representatives of RSSB members and other stakeholders. Our services to support the industry are wide-ranging and include things designed to improve industry performance, standards, risk analysis and safety reporting, research, development and innovation.
